2018 Hyundai Veloster N walkaround: video

The new 2018 Hyundai Veloster made its global debut last week in Detroit, after months of spy photos and a short series of teaser images. As expected, the new Veloster will be offered in three main grades: 110kW/179Nm base models, 150kW/265Nm SR Turbo variants, and the top-shelf 205kW Veloster N hero model. The 2018 Veloster keeps the quirky four-door hatch layout of its predecessor, but takes on a sharpened new look for the latest generation.

Volkswagen Golf 8 production due in 2019, but Australian launch much further out

The next-generation Volkswagen Golf 8 has been confirmed for 2019, according to an announcement made at its Supplier Summit for the upcoming model. Auto Express reports first examples of the next-generation Golf will roll down its Wolfsburg production line in 75 weeks, equating to June 2019. With that in mind, it's logical to expect the new Golf to be revealed sometime before then, either at the Paris motor show in October this year, or at the 2019 Geneva motor show in March next year.
